Our Curriculum

The curriculum is delivered through a combination of generalist (class teacher) and specialist teachers. Every student has a homeroom, with a homeroom teacher and a syndicate team which they belong to. The curriculum is taught by the homeroom teacher and this includes

  • Literacy – reading and writing
  • Mathematics
  • PE and Health – see below for more detail
  • Te Reo Māori
  • Integrated Inquiry Learning –incorporating The Arts, Social Sciences, Science, Technology and Health curriculums, is taught though units planned school-wide with a new focus each term.

Children are scaffolded into the key learning for each unit and then move into developing and carrying out their own inquiry.

Their individual inquiries are assessed using SOLO taxonomy centred around the inquiry process.
